Uncaught exception - Invalid field access : objects

  • Hi! I'm new to Haxe and HaxeFlixel, so everything is not clear for me.
    So, currently I am following the game tutorial on the Docs page. I finished doing the part 6 - Loading the Tilemap, and when I run lime test neko, it opens the game but when I click the start button, the game crashes and the console shows the following errors:

    Called from ? line 1

    Called from PlayState.hx line 32
    Uncaught exception - Invalid field access : objects

    In PlayState.hx, at line 32 is the following code:
    for (e in tmpMap.objects)
    placeEntities(e.name, e.xmlData.x);

    Can someone help?

    I'm on Linux, using VSCode.

  • You might have a mistake in your code somewhere. The tutorial shows 2 options for loading the tilemap. Make sure to use the correct code depending whether you use Ogmo or Tiled to create your tilemap.

    or, there could be a mistake in your created tilemap? The map data room-001.oel for the demo is here

  • @dean Yeah, I had mistyped the layer name. Now, I got a new error. It is the same but the last line is Uncaught exception - Invalid field access : length

    Any ideas?

    That tutorial causes confusion because it includes two ways to create the map. If you're using FlxOgmoLoader map then you don't need that loop.

    From tutorial section 6:

    TiledMap does not have a built-in loadEntities() function, so for that you'll need to change this to:

    for (e in tmpMap.objects)
        placeEntities(e.name, e.xmlData.x);

    But unless you're using FlxTileMap to create the map you dont need that.
    If you're using FlxOgmoLoader , make sure to ignore the change this to ... for Tiled parts.

    There's a link to the completed project on the Conclusion page of the tutorial where you can check the code.
